Royal Institution Lectures 4: Simple Signs and Complicated Communications
Animal languages have been developed for no other purpose than to pass information to each other. To be effective, signals must be clear and incapable of being misunderstood - a process called ritualisation. Many striking things animals do, and many of their bright colours, are explained by David Attenborough.

This week: Some Like It Hot
' I'm a little scared right now because I've never set myself totally on fire before.'
Stuntman Bob Woodham has ' died ' for a living countless times in films like You Only Live Twice, Adam's Woman and Fahrenheit 451. He works with. a team of stuntmen. If it's not Cleopatra or The Guns of Navarone, it's the latest Western, war film or action movie: a 100ft jump from a cliff on to rocks below; a motor bike smashing sidelong into a car at 30 mph; a horse dragging a ' cowboy ' along the ground by his foot at 20 mph; a car crash and two men are thrown through a windscreen ablaze.
Who are the stuntmen? How do they do their stunts? Why do they risk their lives for the cinema?
